Lights of SKION
Lighting Design / Design Research / Materials
The first and leading source of inspiration was literary material related to the importance of light from a philosophical perspective. The practical part was mainly based on iterative modelling processes and techniques like ‘framing’.
The objective was to design with light through a research process that contained intuitive pursuit of morphological aspects through forming processes observed in nature (like tectonic movements).
Analysing various attempts with work on light and shadows on a spatial approach and objects by artists and designers of great importance such as Anish Kapoor and Ingo Maurer. The idea of caves, alcoves and the use of material from the Far East are some examples on the above pictures that have been guided the way to the final result.
The final result was a paper composite that can be seen in the pictures from which the prototypes are made of.
